Not sure this is a bug but what the heck is this?
I literally can't change my library!

A background task is running. If you don't know which one it is, reboot your PC and then open MB. At that point you should be able to change your library.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Ok a bit strange it happens nearly always but at least I now know it's outside the programs control.

I'm curious - how many libraries do you have? And why?
If set up each one as a filter you wouldn't have to keep changing libraries.
